Looking for a great way to start off the new year? What better way to kick off 2012 than with some live Latin Jazz? If you’re in the Southern California area, you’re in luck – LJC can get you into a fantastic event featuring one of the genre’s most exciting young musicians.
Everyday for the next five days, we’ll be giving away 2 pairs of tickets to see pianist Aruán Ortiz and his trio perform in the Los Angeles area on Friday January 13th, 2012. Ortiz is an amazingly creative pianist from Cuba that can paint a song with colorful chords, improvise with a passionate ferocity, and throw down an unstoppable montuno. He’s also a recent winner in LJC’s Best Of 2011 Awards – his arrangement of “El Cumbanchero” for Mark Weinstein’s mixture of jazz and charanga music on El Cumbanchero won for Best Arrangement, a much deserved honor. This is a musician with a command over his artistry and a serious set of chops to back it up – if you’re in the Los Angeles area, you don’t want to miss this!
The concert will feature Ortiz in an intimate environment – this is a house concert that will only hold a small amount of people. You’ll be up front and close to the amazing music from Ortiz and his trio. It’s easy to win these tickets – here’s all you have to do:
